Re: Data consumption

You may have to contact a moderator about that, I agree those numbers seem way off. I just looked at mine and they are slightly off too, though not as off as yours. I would also recomment what @Luddite suggested about a data monitoring app. Make sure it's one that you can set to change every 30 days instead of every month.

Re: Data consumption

I turn my cellular data off when I’m in a wifi zone (for example at home) to ensure these things are limited and don’t happen.

 

hope this helps,

Re: Data consumption

No need to turn mobile data off in WiFi zones.  WiFi always disables Mobile data by rule.  The problem with manual intervention is forgetting to turn mobile data back on when needed.  Then you don't know why things are not working.

@will13am this depends on how the phone is confgured.  iPhones have a "WiFi Assist" feature, and some Androids have similar (on my OnePlus device it's named "Smart Wi-Fi Switching"); if this is enabled, the phone will automatically use mobile data when the WiFi signal is unrelaible or slow.

Re: Data consumption

The only way to correct that was with the moderator_team because it was a mistake when they adjusted my Mb when I had the problem  with the add-on who didn’t stack.... Everything is correct now and I still leave my data off ...and @will13amI don’t forget to put it on when I need data Smiley Wink

I am glad for you that everything is back to normal.  I guess we all do things differently.  I have a friend who also keeps data off all the time.  He's the one that didn't buy a plan with enough data, but insists it's enough.  My concerns are different.  I am not happy that my purchase goes to waste at the end of a billing period.  Since I don't normally use 4GB per month, I keep my data on all the time.

When you change data plans the leftover data does not rollover. It is the same situation month-to-month unused data allotment does not carry over. If you change plans it is almost always better to choose the 'at next billing cycle' option so you do not loose existing unused data during the current billing period.
